Robert Offley, Jr. before June 18th, 1561, on that date he was baptized at St. Michael Bassishaw Church, London. This church no longer stands. Records for the church go back to the 12th century. The original building was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The church was rebuilt and operated until 1900 when it was demolished. His father was Robert Offley, Sr. a merchant of the Staple. His mother may have been the widow of Nicholas Rose or Rose Brakin.

Robert married Anne Osborne on February 3rd, 1589 St. Dionis Backchurch, London. Like St. Michael Bassishaw, this church was also destroyed in 1666, rebuilt and later demolished. Anne's father, Sir Edward Osborne, was Mayor of London from 1583-1585. Her mother was Anne Hewett, whose father had also been Mayor of London in 1559. Robert and Anne had at least fourteen children, though many did not live to adulthood.

Robert worked in his father-in-laws business of trade as member of the 'Merchants of the Levant trading to Turkey and Venice' he was known as a Turkey Merchant. In 1618 he was a member of the Virginia Company and invested £112. He was named Deputy to the General Court, May 22nd, 1622, by King James I.

Robert died before May 16th, 1625, on that date his body was buried at St. Benet Gracechurch, London - which was also burnt in the Great Fire.
