Aquila was a canon lawyer and probably a member of the Laigle family. He may be the master of the school at Avranches in 1198, but was Dean of Chichester before February 1201. He was nominated as bishop in 1209, but was never consecrated. His election was quashed about 1214. He was named Dean of Avranches by 1211 and died sometime after 26 May 1220.
