He was the son of John Rose of Lyme Regis, Dorset and his wife Faith Ellesdon. He was a draper and became Lord of the Manor of Wootton Fitzpaine.
In April 1640, Rose was elected Member of Parliament for Lyme Regis in the Short Parliament. He was re-elected MP for Lyme Regis for the Long Parliament in November 1640. Rose was not excluded from parliament in Pride's Purge in 1648, but was not recorded as sitting after it.
