Here's a slim lead. A Tourville euphonium just sold on eBay. He added to the description a note he had received from someone who said that they had a Tourville tuba. If you write to the seller he may be able to give you the email address of the person with the tuba.
Tourville is listed in Langwill, but all it says is that it was a trade name used for imported Brass Instruments. That implies that Tourville was not actually the manufacturer of these, but that they were actually a "stencil" instrument. I haven't seen too much else on them, but the euphonium sure was pretty. Check the link below.
