Potatoes were introduced into Ireland during the later
1600's-- so within a hundred years of a later-period
persona.  I think that a lot of people think that our
"period" ends with the death of Elizabeth in 1603, so
a person(a) born right at the end of her reign would
maybe (if they lived as long as we do now, which was
unlikely but possible) have seen potatoes in Ireland.
