This paper aims at analyzing Samaan to see how the class consciousness changed in Namwon after the abolition of status system in 1894. 『Namwon Samaan』published in 1918 contains 372 names after it added new people to old Samaan. The names of Hyangri(local clerk), who encountered the stubborn objection from Yangban Sajok in 1892, were added but those of Seochul(Illegitimate Sons) were excluded. This fact shows that traditional class consciousness still remained one generation after the class system was abolished. 『Daebang Yongyean』 compiled in 1938 holds the names of 718 passers of Chinsa(literary licentiate) and Saengwon(classics licentiate) exams. Yongyean accounts for two thirds of traditional Yangban Sajok and here there is a great number of Hyangjok and Hyangri. Minor family and new family names who moved to settle also registered their names on the ground of one or two ancestors who passed the state examination. 『Namwon Samaan』 contains the overwhelming numbers of those from Namwon County, meanwhile in 『Daebang Yongyean』 they are inferior in numbers. It shows the regional characteristic, which was typical feature of Chosun dynasty, was neglected. There are 265 people who registered only a notice of candidates in 『Daebang Yongyean』. Among those 95 passers whose identities were proved by 『Sama Bangmok』, 45 passers were doubtful about their passing the exams. We can confirm more numbers of doubtful passers if we trace back to the period of bcaore King Injo (170 people). And out of 137 people who passed civil service examination there were 40 people whom we can not confirm their names in 『Munkwa Bangmok』. These facts reflected that Samaan and Yongyean can not be functional any more in order to sort out Yangban in the 1930’s. In those days such social milieu was formed that Namwon people behave themselves as the descendants of Yangban only if one or two ancesters passed the Saengwon, Chinsa, Munkwa exam. At the same time people who maintained their descent from Yanban would increase in the near future.
