The history of Parliament is very complex but I think I am right in saying there was no such thing as an MP (Member of Parliament) as we know it, in the "12 Hundereds", by which I assume you mean the 13th century? The Dukes of Northumberland were a very powerful family and any contact with the King probably went through them.
