It is Grossen Varchow which is associated with the Bolckow family and it is not far from Sulten.

The church in Grossen Varchow is the resting place of Heinrich Bolckow snr. He actually helped to build it. I like Jean French am researching Henry Bolckow Jnr 1806 -1878 a major local industrialist and philanthrapist, who came to England and became our town of Middlesbrough's first mayor and first Member of Parliament. I went out to Mecklenburg and saw the church and other Bolckow related sites and buildings in Rostock, Sulten and Grossen Varchow when I spoke about him to a symposium on migration for the 1000th anniversary of Mecklenburg.
