Caroline Maxwell was born November 1, 1974 near the
intersection of Fountain and Vermont in Hollywood,
California. She comes from a family of engineers and
artists. Her mother, a singer, was said to resemble
Julie Andrews, and her father has never forgotten the
German or chemistry tables he learned in high school.
Her more distant relatives include farmers, scientists,
a magician, a vaudeville actor, schoolteachers,
painters and mechanics; they were outlaw Quakers,
fought in the U.S. Civil War, fell overboard the
Mayflower, and were buried in Spy Hill, Canada.
