I recently had to update my profile for a job role and I used the phrase "born and bred in xxxx" to indicate that I was born and raised in a certain part of the world. I always thought born and bred generally means that the person was born and brought up in a certain place and has typical cultural characteristics that are usually associated with that place.
However, someone pointed out that it also denotes a sense of pride, eminence, and perhaps social superiority. It was also pointed out to me that the phrase would typically be used by someone who does have a sense of social superiority but never by someone who comes from not so affluent a background.
I tried searching, but couldn't really confirm this connotation. Is there such a connotation associated with the phrase born and bred?
