Carroll Clark Hincks (November 30, 1889 - September 30, 1964) was a federal judge in the United States.

Hincks was born in Andover, Massachusetts. He attended Yale College and Yale Law School. From 1915 to 1931, he practiced as a lawyer in Connecticut (first in New Haven, then in Waterbury), except for two years as a U.S. Army artillery officer during World War I.

In 1931, Hincks was named by President Herbert Hoover as a judge of the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut. Hincks served on that court for 22 years, including a term as Chief Judge from 1948 to 1953.

In 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower promoted Hincks to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, succeeding Thomas Walter Swan. Hincks took office under a recess appointment on October 3, 1953 and was confirmed by the Senate on February 9, 1954. Hincks took senior status in 1959. He died in 1964.
