Poe Genealogy & History

Poe is a variation of Peacock and is derived from pre-seventh-century Old English pea or pawa, from Latin pavo, meaning vain or puffed up with self-importance. Some other spellings are Pow, Pough, Poee, Peacocke, Peecock, Pacock, and Pea. Poe family history tells us that the first recorded spelling of the name is Roger Paucoc in the Pipe Rolls of Cornwall in 1194. The family was first found in Devon and can trace its lineage back to 846. Noteworthy Poe genealogy members are poet and short story writer Edgar Allan Poe, Maryland Attorney General John P. Poe, Sr., and webcomics artist Michael Poe.
