According to Hoffman's (Polish) Surnames and Bahlow's German Names,  
Poborski is one spelling for tax-collector, coming off the root  Poborc.   In 
German, a tax-collector is a Steuer or Steuerlein or  Steurer, in Middle High 
German, stiure stiuer.

Does  anyone know if there is a German equivalent of the Polish surname  

I have a Gertrude Poborski married Michael Steinke (sometimes  recorded as 
Kaminski in Polish church records) living in Gawrony, a German  community, 
in the early to mid 1800's.  They were  Lutherans.

Thanks for any help.
