In the early 19th century parliaments were formed for a maximum term of seven years. A parliament could be, and usually was, dissolved by the King (at the request of the Prime Minister) before the term expired.
UK General Elections were held in 1802, 1806, 1807 and 1812.
Political groupings such as the Whigs and Tories could best be described as "factions" rather than "parties", as the party political system in the modern sense was still in the process of evolving.
Please note, I am no expert in such matters and have relied on Wikipedia, L&T archives and other on-line sources for this information.
