Born in New York of Huguenot ancestry, Baudouine was first listed as a cabinetmaker in the New York City Directory of 1829-30, working at 508 Pearl Street. He is considered one of the most talented cabinetmakers to have worked in New York in the post-Duncan Phyfe era. Indeed, Ernest Hagen, himself a well-known cabinetmaker (who had at one time worked for Baudouine), called him "the leading cabinetmaker of New York.". Much of Baudouine's work was executed in the Rococo Revival style, based on simplified Louis XV designs.
Due in no small part to their enormous wealth (all of which stemmed from Baudouine's success in business), his relatives and their various exploits were featured frequently in the New York press from the 1890s to the 1930s. For example, Baudouine's grandson, also named Charles A. Baudouine, was renowned for his activities in the equestrian world.
Upon his death, the elder Baudouine left his estate in a trust, worth roughly $1,400,000 at the time, to his son Abram. Baudouine. CC CC Wikipedia
