The earliest trace of Poes in Scotland was at Irving, where, in 1540, the church of Irving received a grant of land in the name of Thome Powa. The spelling is Irish and appeared also in Ayrshire in 1540. Varients were Poe, Poa, Pole, Powell, and Pooe, until after 1760, when it was fixed in Ayrshire as Poe.
In 1667, a number of Scots were forced to leave Scotland following the Pentland Rising (Rullion Green) in 1666. In the Dundonald records, a David Poe in Polkelly, on a farm bordering Fenwick and Stewarton, seven miles from Irvine. On November 21, 1666 he was with others, declared an outlaw by the King's Herald. On December 4, 1666, this proclamation was read at the Market Cross in the parish church of Irvine. David Poe and others became fugatives, hunted covenanters, hiding in Ayrshire. They were never arrested, but the King had them tried in absence on evidence of witnesses and sentenced them to be hanged. David Poe escaped to Ireland. On October 1, 1667, the King's pardon was granted to all who had taken part in the late rebellion, but with special exception of David Poe.
In the early 1600's William, Thomas and Anthony, of Papplewick, North-Hamptonshire, England, and near kinsmen of Dr. Leonard Poe, settled in County Tyrone, Ireland.
Anthony retained his Tyrone lands and acquired interest in Sudborough Estates in County Fermanagh, Ireland, which he named Manor Poe. In the 1640's, William and Anthony served as Captains in the Parliamentary Army; William in Cromwell's regiment. With the rank of Major, he returned to Ireland in 1673, and he died without sons, in 1675. For Anthony's service in Ireland, he obtained grants of forfeited estates under the Cromwell Settlement and founded Poe Court in County Louth, Ireland. Thomas stood losses in the 1641 Rebellion, served Cromwell's forces in Ireland, received land grants in Tipparary, and founded several families of Irish Poes.
In the rebellion of 1641, John Dromgoole of Dromgoolestown was slain on May 1st. He had been son and heir of Michael Dromgoole who had died on October 29th, 1624, leaving him a Castle, 6 messuages, 2 mills, 1 pigeon house and 120 acres of Land.
In 1650 this was all confiscated by Oliver Cromwell who called it Poes Court, in favour of the family later to become famous for their descendant Edgar Allen Poe, the American Poet. Happily the Dromgoole family recovered their properties in Dromgoolestown some ten years later and continued flax milling in the district.
