Hi Gillian,

This sounds like Lomza in Lomza Gubernia in NE Poland. Many people from the adjoining Suwalki and Lomza Gubernias in NE Poland came to the UK in the 1860s and 1870s, and many went to Northern England or Scotland. All eight of my great grandparents came from this area and went to respectively to Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool and Hull (later Sheffield).
