The 1767 census records that Andreas Baini came from Frankfurt am Main.

[There is a Andreas Baini [sic], a farmer from the German region of Isenburg, his wife Maria, and son Johann (age 5) who arrived from Reval [Estonia] at the port of Oranienbaum on 30 May 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Ivan Perepechin. It is possible that this is the same Andreas Baini recorded in Husaren in 1767, but several match-points don't match up.]
