Background of the families van Dort from Australia

About 50% of the Van Dorts in Australia are of Sri Lankan origin, as Singhalese became the prime language causing difficulties for the English speaking Burghers from 1948 onwards. It meant that most of them migrated to Australia, England and the US. It seems that at least one of the van Dort people in Australia came from Bergen op Zoom in the fifties. His name has not been recollected yet. He was either a carpenter or a contractor. There is also a family van Dort in Melbourne who is believed to be from Amsterdam 6). There are about 50 families with the name van Dort on the white pages of Australia.
