John Luffman c1776-1823
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 20:05 BST (UK) »
In an attempt to establish who his father was and overcome a brickwall since 1996 I took a 37  Y DNA test with FTDNA in 2011.
The result one close match, different surname, traced him as descendant of illegitimate son of my grandfather's brother, but nothing else in 9 years. Where do I go next?

How distant a relation is he to you? An autosomal test may give you something useful, but if he is too distant you may not have inherited sufficient DNA from him to produce many useful matches.
As far as Y-DNA is concerned, upgrading to Y-67 or Y-111 is not going to help much. You might consider Big Y-700 which will help you to find your place on the Y-haplotree. After that you can try some target testing of people you think may be descended from the ancestors you are researching.

John is 2x great grandfather. Short of Luffman males outside direct line. Have more girls than boys overall. After a few generations that matters

If he is that close to you then it would be worth taking an autosomal test.
