Using mother's surname

Classification: Query
Surnames: Anderson/Bredesen
Has anyone ever heard of a tradition where the family took on the mother's last name? It seems the children were born under the mothers name and the husband also used it here in the US during the late 1800's early 1900. Father was a baker, last name Anderson. The mother's last name was Bredesen.
