Robert was born about 1522 a younger son of Robert Constable and his wife, Katherine Manners.

By 1562 he was married to Christiana Dabridgecourt, daughter of John Dabridgecourt of Langdon Hall in Warwickshire and widow of Anthony Forster. Together they were the parents of an only son, Henry.

Robert was a soldier in the service of Thopmas Radcliffe Earl of Sussex, during the peer's expedition against the northern rebels in 1570 at which time he was knighted. As Marshal of Berwick Castle he was harassed by want of money and even Burghley noted that Robert had beggared himself in the post: his efforts to get himself released were finally successful in 1578.

He first entered Parliament as MP for Nottinghamshire in 1584. One of the principal mourners at the funeral of Edward Manners, Earl of Rutland in 1587 he himself died in 1591 and was buried at Holy Trinity Minories on 12 November 1591.
