The Namyang Hong clan is divided into the Tang Hong and the To Hong lineages. Although they share the surname Hong and an ancestral seat in Hwaseong's Namyang-eup, and so are grouped together as the Namyang Hong clan, the two lineages do not share a common first ancestor and are not related.
Tang Hong lineageEdit
The Tang Hong lineage of the Namyang Hong clan claims as its progenitor Hong Cheon-ha, who was dispatched to Goguryeo as a scholar of the Tang dynasty and settled in the same place as a refugee because of upheaval in the Tang dynasty. The founder of this lineage was Hong Eun-yeol, who it is claimed descended from Hong Cheon-ha. This claim about Hong Eun-yeol's line of descent from Hong Cheon-ha has not been substantiated.
