Aldin Grout (born September 2, 1803 in Pelham, Massachusetts - died February 12, 1894 in Springfield, USA) was an American missionary known for his missionary activities in Zululand. He married Hannah Davis in November 1834 and traveled to the Cape Colony of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions a month later. He built his first mission in Zululand, called Ginani, in 1836. This station was destroyed in the battle between the Zulus and the Boers, and he built a new station called Inkanyezi in 1841.
