The Poers or Pohers seem to be closely associated with Ireland. This family may have been the same one that was granted the city and county of Waterford in 1177.
According to some of the research I dug up, the last name “Poer” is apparently derived from “the Poor,” so kudos to whatever medieval ancestors went from being so broke it became part of their name to being wealthy and/or kickass enough for a knighthood and a coat of arms. I know it probably didn’t happen in one generation, but I like to think it did. I like to think of that first Poor coming back from battle, boars’ heads painted on his shield, and daring anyone to call him stone broke. Actually, now that I type it out, “boar” and “poor” sound close enough that these arms might be a pun (assuming that the medieval English pronounced those words the same way we do. Okay, it’s a stretch.)
