Henry Touchburn from Ireland, (born bet 1833 & 1837), came to Canada and married Catherine Anderson (born abt Oct 30, 1837 in Fermanaugh Ireland) on February 26, 1862 in Bruce, Ontario. He was the son of George Touchbourne and Elizabeth ? She was the daughter of James Anderson and Mary ? (Maybe Trotter/Powell/Porter/?). At that time his residence was listed as Huron Co, and her residence was Kincardine.
In 1871 census they were living in Bruce South, Greenock and had children Isabella (can't read the age) and Charlott age 6. Maria Robinson living with them age 14 from Scotland. They were Methodist and Henry was a storekeeper. Name spelled Touchburn in this census

In 1881 census they were living in Minto, Wellington North, Ontario. With another child Charles S. born in 1872 and Angeline born 1861, a student. Maybe not their child because not listed in 1871. Henry was listed as a farmerName spelled Touchbourn in this census.

In 1901 census Catherine was widowed & found in Brandon Manitoba district, sub-district Whitehead. Living with her was Sarah A. Noble domestic aged 20. In the same area was son Charles S. Touchburn aged 27 (born Sept 6, 1873), wife Addie J. (born Apr 3, 1875) and child Carrol B age 2 (born Mar 5, 1899 with a lodger Harrie Baker and a domestic Murrie Banks living with them.

In 1906 Brandon district, sub-district 10, Charles and Addie had another son H Touchburn age 3 and mother Catherine was living with them as well as a servant F. Corbitt.

Catherine (Anderson) Touchburn died in Brandon, Manitoba January 26, 1913 at the age of 77.
If anyone has further information on this family I would love to hear from you.
Catherine's sister Mary Ann married Robert Elliott and other sister Isabel married either a Robert Good or a John William Good. They all lived in or around the Goderich area.
Catherine's brother John T. Anderson live near Bayfield in Huron co and married Ann Johnston. Another brother James Anderson married Melinda Eddy and lived near Wilsonville and Townsend areas. I think Townsend is in Norfolk county.
