Hi,

A Constantine MORATT was Naturalised in Queensland in 1886.

Reference, is State Archives of Queensland.
Mirofilm Z2000
item, 270567

Would need to look at the film to see details of the date, place and hopefully other important details.

Qld death: 1944 #C4055 Constantine MORATT; Warranabo; Lemetrulla Christina

MORATT, Constantine; age 98; date of burial 24/6/1944

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/61925395
DEATH OF Mr. C. MORATT
A residence of over 60 years in Townsville and district was severed with the death last week of Mr. Constantine Moratt, at the age of 98 years.
The deceased was a native of Kranidi, Greece, and left his native land at the age of 15 years, the call of the sea proving too strong. For many years he pursued a seafaring life, visiting all countries of the world in that calling. On one occasion, he was wrecked in the Black Sea and was forced to swim from 6 p.m. until 4 a.m. prior to being rescued.
The late Mr. Moratt arrived in Townsville on the Hopewell, in 1882, the vessel carrying a cargo of flour for Burns, Philp and Co. Although he made Townsville his home, he still went down to the sea in ships, being engaged for some time on the timber trade from Maryborough and also to New Guinea. In 1884, he was a participator in the removal of some of the old Airdmillan mill machinery, in the Ayr district, to different destinations. He was also on vessels which died between the Burdekin area and Townsville, when sugar from Pioneer was loaded at Baratta Creek and that from Kalamia at Plantation Creek. Some of the ships with which he was associated were the Star of Hope and Amy (Aplin Brown), Minnehaha (E. K. Russell), Electric Light (Burns, Philp), Burdekin (Aplin Brown), Ellen (Howard Smith) theArakoon and the Snow Drop.
Mr. Moratt, in his later years, could recall that the late Robert Philp had travelled with him on many occasions, also the late James Tyson. He also was on ships which travelled to the small ports between Townsville and Cairns. Later he worked on the dredges Platypus and Crocodile at Townsville, and was engaged at the construction of the breakwaters.
Leaving the sea, Mr. Moratt entered work on the waterfront as a watersider. He was one of the earliest members of the Loyal Kennedy Lodge M.U.I.O.O.F.
The late Mr. Moratt was a man who throughout his long life enjoyed splendid health and was never known to have missed a meal. His remaining hair, to the time of his death, was black; he possessed all his own teeth and his eye sight was not even sufficiently impaired to require the use of spectacles. He was in his heyday, regarded as the strongest man in Townsville, and as a member of
the Naval Brigade was frequently the anchor man in different tugs-o'-war. He was a man of irreproachable character. He possessed his full faculties to the end.
Left to mourn are Mrs. W. A. Deane, a daughter, and Mr. A. W. Moratt, a son. His wife predeceased him in 1929, as well as some of his children, including the late Mr. Jim Moratt.
