From Tolkien Gateway
The Sackville Family was a hobbit family of the Shire.
Camellia Sackville is the only known member of the family; apart from her almost nothing is known about them, except that they are described as being one of the Shire's wealthier families.
For more of them see Sackville-Baggins Family
The name Sackville is intended to be of more aristocratic association than Baggins. Tolkien noted that it was intentional that "bag" and "sack" have similar meaning.
Sackville is a real-life English surname.
