Related Brickleys in the British Army?

I know that I have a Brickley as a 3X Great Grandfather: who was in the 49th Regiment of Foot, British Army. He was Thomas Brickley:

BIRTH 17 MAR 1793 • Enniscorth, Wexford, Ireland
DEATH 8 JUL 1844 • St Helier, Jersey, Channel Islands;

On a family tree of one of my DNA Matches there are Richard (b. abt. 1765) and George Brickley (b. abt 1775) born in Shropshire, both members of the 53rd (Shropshire) Regiment of Foot [I think].

I wonder if anyone has some clues that might lead to a family relationship among the 3 Brickleys? The Brickleys I know of moved around a lot- serving in Canada, France, West Indies, Ireland and South Africa and their history has huge gaps but I know enough and my cousins agree, that Thomas Brickley and his desendants are "ours". Can we claim Richard and George plus their descendants?

Any help welcome. I do not have access to FMP and I am hopeless with the British Archives- the Australian ones trick me frequently!
