Charles (or Carl) Ferdinand Henry Bolckow, Iron Master of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England was born in Germany circa 1835.
In the 1871 census, he claimed he was born at Loltz, Pomerania, Prussia.
When he applied for naturalisation in 1879, he said his place of birth was Grossen & Varchow, Mecklenberg Schwerin, Germany.
Are these two places close to each other?
