Tourburg, Russia. #general

The 1891 Census, it states that my ggf was born in Tourburg, Russia. I have
scratched my head in vain about Tourburg, and it is quite unclear what place
can be meant here. I came across the name 'Yurburg' and thought that
'Tourburg' might be a clerical error for Yurburg. Yurburg (German:
Georgenburg) is quite close to Vilkovisk (where his wife was born) so it
would make sense if he had come >from there. Can someone shed any light on
this?

Best Wishes
