* a researcher in Nottingham examined the original and reported this note


The pages at this link contain similar data compiled by researcher Enid Tanfield from primary sources she examined as a librarian studying her Poe ancestry and trying to find a connection to her Irish Poe line to the Poe family of central England. Recent DNA results show that these are probably unrelated Poe families, however.


Enid passed away January 1, 2006. Over the course of several weeks in 2005 she copied most of her findings and mailed them to me. I have scanned nearly all of the research. This can be downloaded together in a 12MB “ZIP” file at:
