Families covered: Poe of Belleen, Poe of Harley Park, Poe of Solsborough

BLG1886 reports that this family "is stated to have come from the Upper Palatinate of the Rhine". We follow the other sources in showing the family name as simply "Poe". However, BIFR1976 shows it as "Poë" (with a diaeresis/umlaut over the e).
