There was an article written in 1907 where the author was Naoroz M Parveez. The article was called “Indo British Trade with Persia” and details are given in the FIBIS Fibiwiki page Iran
http://wiki.fibis.org/index.php?title=Iran

Following the presentation of the paper, in London, there was a discussion in which the author was stated to be a Parsi “well known in Bombay”

The Parsis came from Iran, formerly known as Persia.

It seems possible that the surname Parveez is either Parsi and/or Iranian in origin. If this is so, the early members of the family were unlikely to be Christian, so there would be no church records.

You could try searching the online newspapers and journals for the period you are interested in. The FIBIS Fibiwiki has pages “Directories online” and “Newspapers and journals online” for publications relevant to India.

If you should live in NSW, Australia, and some other places, you can access the Times of India online. See the FIBIS Fibiwiki page “Subscription websites-online newspapers, journals and directories”
