Re: F.A.O. BlueDave

So in that case - the history and the heritage of the people of South Shields only goes back to the 1920's/30's then? Well as she was born long before then, are you saying ... me Ganny didn't exist then?!! In your line of thinking then your ancestry doesn't go beyond Geordies. We are of course talk...

Blue Dave why do you think its called NORTHUMBERLAND. Its LAND NORTH of the HUMBER. Northumbria is just a fancy name invented by Sloane Rangers. :lol: A think that's what it is with the name sand dancers - it's people who fancy thasels as bein a bit diffrunt and want a swanky term for the place the...

If Northumberland is the land north of the Humber does that mean Scotland is or was in Northumberland? :?

Sorry memor but that was northumbria as opposed to northumberland which covers a far lesser area. That being said Jane Does explanations far outlast anyones actual interest in the subject I'd wager. :wink: "The name appears also in the titles of today's Northumbria Police (which covers Northumberla...

F.A.O. Sanddancer

Thanks Jane Doe, you have obviously carried out a good deal of research into the subject. However a Rose, by any other name will still be a Rose, and a Sanddancer will remain a sanddancer :D What were Shields people before the 1920's then? And as Neil T pointed out on the other MB (the General MB):...

[quote="Jane Doe Also, I think that since the pit (my man was a pitman), shipyards and coal staithes closed down the younger people in Shields have lost touch with their Geordie heritage. (By younger I don't just mean teenagers & early 20's - I mean up to their 40's approx.) People from shields don...

NeilT its not a pub i get in a lot as last time i was in there i found it a bit dear for a drink, as for the geordies v sanddancers thing, there is nothing to stop people saying that they are from the north east of england and therefore are from geordie land, but at the same time they can use the e...

Ouch - nice one Jimmy - you made me squirm after my very first post. Been there from around 1990 I would guess. Don't like the place myself though -sells food and too many bairns running around. However I don't really think it detracts from the point I was making - that is, how Shields people ident...

Jane is right on this one, I use to work in Sunderland quite a while back now and when they found out you were from Shields you were labeled a sanddancer and I've got to say I did find it a derogatory insult. The fact is they were refering to the arab population in Shields, and that is how the term...

Jane Doe. It really does not matter what you're opinion on being called a sanddancer is. This is the undisputeable fact. You are one. P.S. To everyone else. Doesn't she go on? :wink: It is not an undisputeable fact - what were Shields people 'pre-open-air dances' on the beach? Geordies! I was born ...

I'm just setting the record straight. Setting precisely what record straight, Jane?

Although I have titled this post F.A.O. Baldy Smith, it is an open question really to anyone from South Shields who considers themselves to be Sanddancers instead of Geordies.

I personally have no problems being called a Sanddancer. It is a specific identity and these days everyone knows where you are from in you're a Sanddancer. Who is to say that the being called a Geordie didn't come about in similar circumstances, no one can really say; as there is much more controve...
