Sir Edward Hoby (1560 – 1 March 1617) was a diplomat, Member of Parliament, scholar, and soldier in England during the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I. He was the son of Thomas Hoby and Elizabeth Cooke, the nephew of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, and the son-in-law of Queen Elizabeth's cousin Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon.

A favourite of King James, Hoby published several works supporting the Protestant cause as well as translations from the French and Spanish. His heir was his illegitimate son, Peregrine Hoby.
