Dear Genners,
The name Van Es is a shortening of the city name Essen in Germany. I
find this text in the site of =93Akevoth=94 : The Dutch Jewish Genealogical
Data Base (in Jerusalem):

Salomon Abraham Levy van Es, birth 1759 Essen, Pruissen, Duitsland, died
17 Sep 1829 Meppel, Drenthe, Nederland, son of Abraham Izak van Es and Judik Mozes

This is very clear that this family came to Holland >from Essen and took the
name Van Es.

About the name Dormiets, I think that it is a Toponim name and comes from
the place name Dormitz in Bavaria, Germany in the vicinity of Forcheim.
The name Barmets is a Toponim name as we see in a text from
Akevoth in Jerusalem [that I will send to upon request].
