MacLysaght's "Surnames of Ireland" lists "Hosey" as dual origin.

The Norman family "de Hosey" of Counties Meath and Kerry.
"Ó hEodhusa," a bardic family related to the Maguires in Cos. Fermanagh and Tyrone.

My guess is that the Norman ancestry of the first source extended to Scotland. That is the source to trace.
