- He was the eldest son of Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset, by Cecily, daughter of Sir John Baker. His grandfather, Sir Richard Sackville, invited Roger Ascham to educate Robert with his own son, an incident inn 1563 that Ascham introduced into his pedagogic work The Scholemaster (1570) as prompting the book. His tutor Claudius Hollyband dedicated to him the French language manuals The French Schoolemaster (1573) and The Frenche Littelton (1576), which would see a combined total of fifteen editions through the year 1609. He matriculated from Hart Hall, Oxford, 17 December 1576, and graduated B.A. and M.A. on 3 June 1579; it appears from his father's will that he was also at New College. ....

- Cecily, married Sir Henry Compton, K.B.
- Lady Margaret died on 19 August 1591; Robert Southwell, who never met her, published in her honour, in 1596, Triumphs over Death, with dedicatory verses to her surviving children.
- Dorset married, secondly, on 4 December 1592, Anne (d. 22 September 1618), daughter of Sir John Spencer of Althorp, and widow of, first, William Stanley, 3rd Baron Monteagle, and, secondly, Henry Compton, 1st Baron Compton. In 1608–9 Dorset found reason to complain of his second wife's misconduct, and was negotiating with Archbishop Richard Bancroft and Lord Ellesmere for a separation from her when he died.

Anne Spencer was the fifth daughter of Sir John Spencer of Althorpe (d. 1586) and Katherine Kytson. She married William Stanley, 3rd Baron Mounteagle (1527-November 10,1581) in 1575 and following his death wed Henry, 1st Baron Compton (1538-1589). On December 4, 1592 she married her third husband, Robert Sackville, 2nd earl of Dorset (1561-1609) In 1608/9, he sought a separation from her on the grounds of misconduct and she, in turn, invaded King James’s Privy Chamber to bring her side of the matter to the king’s attention. Dorset died before he could negotiate a formal separation or a divorce. Poet Edmund Spenser dedicated his Mother Hubbard’s Tale to Anne in 1591 and she was probably the “bountiful Charillis” of his Colin Clout’s Come Home Again (1595).
