Neat! Suppose it could be Poulet - chicken too. Polar comes up also. The Northern Ireland connection is interesting - was this the Rev.Pooler who was part of the English "Plantation" of NI?
My connection is to a Capt Thomas Pooler who either drowned with his ship scuttling it for the insurance or was hanged for it! (Family Legend!) This was 1832 while his wife Maragaret Donnely was expecting John - Born in Comber that year!
