Edward Murray Charles Ede (24 April 1881 – 23 July 1936) was an English first-class cricketer. Ede was a left-handed batsman who bowled slow left-arm orthodox spin.

Ede made his first-class debut for Hampshire in the 1902 County Championship against Leicestershire.

Ede took 40 wickets at an average of 31.17 with best bowling figures of 7-72. Ede had two five wicket hauls in his career, taking ten wickets in a match against Derbyshire in 1905. The 1905 season was his best season, with Ede taking 28 wickets.

Ede also played first-class cricket for the Gentlemen of England against Cambridge University in 1905. Ede represented the Hambledon Club in a commemorative first-class match against an England XI in 1908.

Ede was a solicitor by profession. In 1924 he was tried and convicted of fraud. Ede emigrated to Australia, where on 23 July 1936 he died in Sydney from pneumonia after a fall.
