Manook 1811-1847, wrote the first words in the book about the Zohrab family, printed in 1879 by the All-Saviour's Monastery, New Julfa, Iran.  He lived in Madras, India.

Mackertich 1791-1833, drew up first "Zorabian Genealogy" in 1820, which was apparently relied upon by Avetik Zorabian's "Annotations".

Carapiet Mackertich Zohrab, 1818-1859, son of Mackertich, was known as "The Intellectual Teacher", having been a pupil of the celebrated Armenian, Mesrobe Thaghiadiants.  Carapiet was a scholar in Classical Armenian and English and taught at the school attached to the All-Saviour's Monastery.

Many of Basil's descendants changed the spelling of "Zohrab" to "Zorab" because they were living in India and wanted to avoid confusion with a Parsee family with a similar name.
