One of the geographical meanings of "down" in English English is "South" .

"South (as south is at the bottom of typical maps).
I went down to Miami for a conference."

If one takes Yankee to mean New Yorker, then surely North Carolina is down??

We have country bumpkins in the Home Counties.  And is London "up" or "down" 
from York?
