I am starting my first form 1 sbr on an existing class 1 firearm. Must I change the manufacturer name and address on the reciever, after I get my approved form 1 back?

You leave all existing markings alone... You just add your info: Name, City and State

I put my info under the grip.

As posted by Quarterbore in SBR FAQ under M16 forum:

After you obtain your approved Form 1 from the BATFE, you will then need to mark your lower. Specific guidance for the requirements for marking your receiver can be found here www.atf.gov/pub/qtrly_bulletins/vol3_qb2001/subpartc.pdf. The markings NEED to be visible and NOT HIDDEN according to what I have read lately (THIS IS A NEW REQUIREMENT as many people used to engrave this on the stub where the pistol grip mounts so it didn't show...) make sure you do it correctly. As far as doing the engraving, one of the best paces to get a clean engraving is to take your lower receiver to one of the Mall engraving stores but obviously you will not want to take a complete gun and it wouldn't be wise to leave your rifle (lower) with a teenage attendent while you go shopping!

Thanks for the ATF publication location, as for the actual engraving I will be doing it with a CNC mill myself.
