Early Poulson in N.Ireland

Does anyone have confirmation or knowledge of 17th century Poulsons in county Armagh in Ulster?
The 1665 muster roll for Armagh has John Poulson at Ferrowe (now known as Farra townland) in Drumcree parish near Portadown. The muster roll is a typescript, the original being destroyed in the Four Courts fire in Dublin, 1922. I'd not heard of the Poulson name and wondered whether in this case it was a typo error for Roulson or Roulston, a common variant of the Rolston/Rolleston name. Now I find that Poulsons are for real, so my theory may be out of the window.
Anyone able to comment on this?
Ken Rolston.
