Daughter of Nicholas Brown, of Providence, Rhode Island.
Wife of Paolo Bainotti∼Carrie Mathilde Brown Bajnotti was the younger sister (b. 1841) of Annmary Brown Hawkins. The girls were the daughters of Nicholas Brown III and Caroline Clements Brown; they were the granddaughters of the second Nicholas Brown, the benefactor after whom Brown is named. As a result of their father's apppointment as Consul to Rome by President Polk, they spend much of their childhood in a variety of European locales, including Rome and Switzerland. General Christopher Rush Hawkins often blamed these childhood European sojourns for the continued respiratory ailments from which his beloved wife, Annmary Brown Hawkins, and also his sister-in-law, Carrie, of whom he was very fond, suffered during their lives. Carrie Brown married the Italian Count Bajnotti, a Foreign Affairs officer, and moved to Europe, living in St. Petersburg, Rome and Paris. She died in Palermo in 1892.
