Edgar Hose was born in Camberwell, then in Surrey, the second son of John and Maria Henley Robinson. His mother died before he was ten years old, and his widowed father married for a second time, to Jemima Closs Fieldwick. From this second marriage, Edgar gained two younger brothers, Henry Fieldwick Hose and Arthur Steains Hose He had a younger sister, Mary, (born in 1870). Edgar's father, throughout this period, was involved in the manufacture of linen. Hose was educated at Dulwich College.

He remained involved in hockey after he had ceased to play the game. In 1899 he wrote a chapter in J. Nicholson Smith and Philip A. Robson's Hockey: historical and practical, his chapter being dedicated to his position of Outside-right. In this publication he stated that: "Outside-right has been justly called the easiest place to fill satisfactorily in a hockey team.".
