East Friesland


Explanation:
Encyclopedia.com lists 'East Friesland':

http://www.encyclopedia.com/printablenew/14587.html

Columbia Encyclopedia and Bartleby also lists 'East Friesland':

http://www.bartleby.com/65/ea/EastFrie.html

infoplease.com as well:
http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/world/A0816592.html

Merriam-Webster on-line:
http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?va=Friesland

But I also got a lot of goofle results for 'eastern Frisia'. I guess it all depends on the authority of the sources. You decide!
