Witz -- a town in the old Russian Empire #general

Does anybody know what the present day name is of a place called Witz,
a place of birth noted in British naturalization papers of a former
citizen of the Russian Empire? I've had a go with the Daitch Mokotoff
search on the Shtetlseeker but obviously there are quite a few
contenders. I was wondering if anyone knew this as an anglicized or old
name of a town. I do realize it is also the ending of many surnames but
this is definitely a place.

I would appreciate the answer sent to me privately as well as to the
list as I receive the digest version.
